  • Very nice Park with very beautiful waterfalls. One of the cool places in Louisiana to walk. The big trail is not well marked and is no longer feasible from the beginning to the end. prepare 4 dollars to leave at the entrance of the Park.

  • Loved the trail! Just be prepared to pay $4.00 fee in cash. There is no one there to make change. We were able to scrounge up $4.00 in cash & coins.
  • An amazingly beautiful place. Went here on a date, best date ever. Absolutely loved it here. Waterfalls are absolutely wonderful. Would love to bring my little girl. She would love it!!
  • Amazing place. The park manager Mark is a great guy. However, the LSU teens that come here are real snubs and don't clean up after themselves. They treat the park like crap. A word to them: stop being snootish little pricks and start treating the park with respect. If you can't be nice and clean up after yourself then stay home. One thing they clearly don't teach at LSU is respect.
  • A beautiful place to go hiking. Those hills are pretty steep though. I do have a good time when I do go. :) ;) ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
  • Been several times over the years. Beautiful scenery, but it gets busier every year.
